The Odyssey Reading Group
Kera Sloan

Emily Wilson's 2018 translation of Homer's Odyssey has been called "crisp and musical," "a revelation" and a "thrill to read." During six sessions over three months, this small group will read and discover the magic and power of Homer's poem using this translation. Occasional visits by classics scholars will help this group-led discussion.

Dates: Saturdays, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
